Days after police nabbed a man in Berbice in connection to the 2013 murder of Tolasicy Marshall called “Talo”, the suspect was this afternoon charged and remanded to prison.
31-year-old Muammar Jabbar, also known as Christopher Haynes, of James Street, Albouystown, Georgetown, appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
It is alleged that on August 20, 2013 at James Street, Albouystown, while being armed with a knife, he murdered Marshall.
The unrepresented man was not required to plead to the indictable charge after it was read to him.
The man, in addressing the court, stated that he is unaware of a wanted bulletin being issued for his address since he has been attending court in Berbice for the past four months.
Police Prosecutor Shellon Daniels, however, told the court that a wanted bulletin was issued for Jabbar in August 2013 after he reportedly stabbed Marshall to death.
She added that it was only recently that police received information that he was in Berbice and they went and arrested him.
According to information, on the day in question, the two were involved in an argument over money and a gold chain and Jabbar became annoyed and dealt Marshall several stabs.
The stab covered victim was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he succumbed and Jabbar went into hiding.
The father of two was remanded to prison until June 24.
